Knee Pain

Discover How to Relieve Knee Pain And Return to the Activities You Love

Knee pain is among the most common injuries that we treat. Maybe the pain started after going for a run, during a round of golf, or while doing squats or jumps at the gym. Maybe you think you just have "bad knees" or that it runs in your family. There can be a wide range of causes of knee pain. Regardless of the cause, knee pain can be very limiting and prevent you from exercising or doing the activities you are used to. It can also make simple tasks such as going up and down stairs or walking difficult.

“Why is this happening to me?” OR “Why am I still suffering from knee pain after putting up with if for six months (or more)?”

Most people hope that they'll wake up one morning and "like magic", it'll be as if the knee pain never happened. Unfortunately if this has been going on for a few months, this isn't likely to happen. knee pain can be very frustrating and the longer is goes on the more you start to question why this is happening and wonder if something is significantly wrong.

Has this type of thing happened to you?

The longer the knee pain goes on, the more you start to look for answers. Maybe you you’ve been told different things by friends or family members or have tried to find answers on the internet which often makes things even more confusing and causing more fear in the process. Maybe you think you have to rest. Or, that you should be doing “this exercise” and “that exercise” to make the pain go away. Maybe you think that surgery is your only option.

All of this information can make it overwhelming and confusing to know what exactly what to do. And because of this confusion, people procrastinate and put off making a decision about treating their pain. Worse yet, many people just end up accepting it as “part of life”.

Another situation we see quite often is that the pain will end up causing them to see the doctor. The individuals’ doctor will tell them to rest, “try these painkillers or steroids” and “see how it goes.” This is rarely ever the best advice, and six weeks later, they end up going back to the doctor for more pills or another injection because it hasn’t got any better

If you are currently dealing with knee Pain There are several more reasons why it could be lasting longer than it should:

  • You thought the pain would go away on its own, but it hasn't.

  • You went to the doctor, who told you to rest and take medications—but the pills have only masked the pain, and as soon as they wore off, the knee pain was right back where it started.

  • You have continued to try to push through the same exercises and activities despite the pain.

  • You tried other healthcare professionals like physical therapists or chiropractors in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help. Or, the exercises given only made the pain worse!

  • You tried ice, knee braces  IcyHot and Googled "best knee exercises", but nothing helped for very long. Ice and stretching felt a bit better in the moment but the pain relief didn't last long.

  • You thought it would be a good idea to rest, but your knee still irritates you.

  • You decided to try a massage, but while it was relaxing and felt good, it hasn't done anything to fix the pain for more than a couple of hours or days!

What Can You Do About Your Knee Pain?

Commit to getting some help

First off, make a decision about getting help. So many people procrastinate for so long, thinking that the knee pain will "just go away with time," but then six months down the line they're still putting up with it!

Keep Moving

One of the worst things you can do when you are dealing with knee pain or any injury is to rely on rest as the solution. This often only makes things worse. This is not to say that you shouldn't modify your activity around the pain, but don't shut things down entirely. 


Get the Right Diagnosis 

Arriving at the correct diagnosis can help identify the appropriate exercises for you. One of the best things to help you ease your knee pain is to do the right series of exercises for the root cause of your knee  pain. The right exercises given to you by a seasoned physical therapist will help reduce pain and allow you to move freely again, AND make sure that the problems don't come back! Knee pain is just a symptom of a problem. Often times, the knee isn't even the root of the problem 


Seek Treatment for the Entire Body

Your knee never moves without requiring other parts of the body to participate along with it. You knee might be the source of the pain, however the hips, ankles, and even your lower back can be where the root problem actually lives!

Get Physical Therapy
